  1. Is there a nightlight in the bathroom on POA?
  2. Glad to hear it. Our travel agent recommended this tour and it synched up with our cruise around the horn. Looking forward to it!
  3. We are doing a Globus tour of Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in March,2016. Did you think they did a good job? How were the hotels and transportation? Guides?
  4. Just spoke to my cabin mate and she has made other arrangements for us in Ushuaia. So we will not be joining your tour. Thanks for all your help.
  5. Can't see how we add ourselves to your tour. It asks for payment but does not specify who or what group you are part of. Am I missing something?
  6. Found your tour on the spreadsheet and added our names. I hope the price does go down as that is a little higher than I wanted to do. But it is exactly what we wanted to do so it should be worth it.
  7. We are on the same cruise with you and would be interested in the tour you have described. Do you have this tour arranged? What is the cost?
  8. Thanks for your suggestions. I think I have some idea now of options.
  9. We will be visiting these ports in March, 2016 and want to know what is there to see if we do not want to go see penquins. My friend saw enough penquins when she went to Anartica so would like to do something else. I can't seem to find much info about tours that are not to see wild life. I know there is a Welsh town 90 minutes from Puerto Madryn but we would prefer not having to travel 3 hours. Is there anything to see in these towns themselves?
  10. We were on the same cruise and, while we would have preferred docking in town, we just didn't find this to be such a big deal. The shuttle buses dropped us right downtown. We were also on the bus that had the one hour delay because of an accident. When we travel we know that things may happen that are beyond our control and the control of the tour/cruise line. We don't let things like this impact our enjoyment of our trip. We did and saw everything we wanted to see and do in Amsterdam. That was what was important to us. I did not notice any smell at the dock and, while it certainly was not a beautiful location, we were too busy to really pay much attention to the location.
  11. Thanks for the information. I know we have to prepare for changing weather. Layers are the key, of course. This is my first river cruise but I have done many ocean cruises. I'm looking forward to seeing how they compare. With five "girl" friends, it should be a lot of fun.
  12. Thanks for the information. Sounds like I don't need to have the extra hanging space if they give you plenty of hangers. I always seem to be short hangers on the regular cruise lines. I hope you enjoyed your cruise. We are looking forward to leaving on 5/20. I hope the weather in Holland and Belgium cooperates!
  13. If you are on the boat now, tap the wall of the cabin and see if it sound like metal. On regular cruise ships I bring magnet hooks to use on the wall to give me extra hanging space. Love it know if I can go that on the Viking longships. Thanks for responding!
  14. Are the walls on the Ingvi metal like they are on ocean cruise ships? Seems logical that they would be, but I thought I would ask.
  15. We are doing the Tulips and Windmills cruise and we just got our flight information. We have non-stop flights from Chicago to Amsterdam on Delta. I went onto Delta's website to check the seats and they were as quoted to us. Hopefully your flights are satisfactory but, if not, you can pay the $50 custom air charge when you get your flights and have them changed.
